  1. An Adaptive Pattern Recognition Algorithm for a Powered Lower Limb Prosthesis

    5d86p024p?file=thumbnail
    Description: Pattern recognition algorithms have been proposed as a way to control powered lower limb prostheses, specifically for transitioning between the different pre-programmed locomotion modes of the prosthesis (e.g., level ground walking, stair ascent, etc.). However, these algorithms cannot track changes in the statistical characteristics of input signals, and do not...

  5. Nanoscale Mechanics of Ductile Interphases in Solid Solution Directionally Solidified Eutectic Composites

    Dn39x1578?file=thumbnail
    Description: Ceramic matrix composites are known for their low density, high strength and high stiffness, but lower fracture toughness compared to metal matrix composites. The addition of a reinforcing agent within the matrix can increase the toughness of the composite via many strain energy absorption mechanisms such as plastic deformation. This...

  6. Engineering Substrate-Mediated Gene Delivery with Self-Assembled Monolayers and Soft Lithography

    Th83kz455?file=thumbnail
    Description: Substrate-mediated delivery involves the immobilization of DNA, complexed with nonviral vectors, to a biomaterial or surface that supports cell adhesion. Cells cultured on the substrate are exposed to elevated DNA concentrations within the local microenvironment, which enhances transfection. As surface properties are critical to this delivery approach, self-assembled monolayers (SAMs)...

  7. Mechanistic Modeling of Hydrocarbon Autoxidation: Theory and Application to the Study of Lubricant Degradation

    Kk91fk62k?file=thumbnail
    Description: Autoxidation is a primary route by which lubricants in working conditions undergo degradation. Degraded lubricants, if not replaced periodically, contribute to increased wear and product failure. Experimental studies of lubricant degradation have yielded useful results but have left important questions unanswered. While many computational studies of degradation have been carried...
